Set on the hillside overlooking the quaint harbour village of Portpatrick, we offer affordable luxury bed & breakfast in a home full of art, books and music.
‘Ardwell’ is the slightly larger of our two rooms and has distant view of the Portpatrick Hotel and the sea from the front window. The room is bright and light with modern decor and the walls are decorated with unique photographs and artwork created by your hosts, Glenda & Adrian Waterworth.
Your bedroom is designed for a comfy and cosy night's rest with blackout blinds, egyptian cotton bedding, a delightful tea tray and fluffy towels.
This room has exclusive use of a large private bathroom just across the hall from the bedroom. The bathroom has both a shower and a bath and we provide bathrobes and slippers for your convenience.
The TV has all locally available Freeview channels and in addition, there is also a DVD player and a selection of DVDs for you to watch.
Disponible para huéspedes
You will have access to your bedroom and your private bathroom (not shared with anyone else) which is across the hall from the bedroom.
Glenda teaches art workshops and can arrange a one day workshop during your stay. The studio is up a single flight of stairs.
On sunny evenings, we have a couple of garden chairs outside on the patio where you can look over the sea and watch the sun setting over the mountains of Northern Ireland.
Atención a los huéspedes
We are an artist and a photographer/writer who both work from home, so we are around most of the time to help out with questions and provide local information.
Throughout the house you will find examples of Glenda's artwork and Adrian's photography as our house is a gallery showcase for our business, Portpatrick Studios. Much of the work on display is for sale so do ask if you see something you like. We offer a selection of individually tailored private workshops for guests, including acrylic seascape painting, various mixed media classes and bookbinding. If you would like more details, please just ask.

Originally from Cumbria, my Scottish roots kept calling me and in 2014 we decided to make Portpatrick our home. I am an artist and web designer alongside my husband who is a photographer and writer. Together we run Portpatrick Studios, an online shop where we sell fine art prints, photographic prints and other products. You'll see our artwork around the house.
I am a bit of a home bird so look for comfy beds and quiet locations when I travel. I helped my parents run a B&B in the 90s, and I love getting to meet people from all walks of life.
